    Has anybody seen version 5.0 on 3.5" disks? It think it was bundled with 8086/286? processor boards for Acorn computers in the UK and these came fitted with 3.5" drives as standard. Here's the cover of the manual with an Acorn logo.

  • I’ve got two copies of it on 3.5” one is an OEM 2 disk set and one is retail, I think, on 3 disks, but the retail set is missing disk 2. It might be possible to recreate using the 360k disks on this site, until someone can dump a complete set.

    Thanks.

    The manual I have was supplied with the Acorn Learning Curve PC emulator which was originally bunded with the Acorn A3000 risc computer.

    Here is the data sheet PDF, 1 page, and the PC Emulator handbook PDF, 56 pages.

    I wonder your file year/time stamp of 3.5" DR-DOS 5.0 is.

    I have a boxed OEM copy of DR DOS 5.0, two 3.5" disks, ViewMAX isn't included. All files are dated 02/02/91 so it's the very latest version of DR DOS 5.0. Currently I do not have it at hand but I intend to image the disks ASAP.

    Seems like the DR-DOS 5.0 is bundled with viewmax, and DR-DOS 6.0 equal. The main differences is 6.0 uses SuperPCKWIK as a disk caching driver, and it has addstor superstor disk compressión and advanced commands to make menus in config.sys , load another config.sys. But the two DR-DOS 5 and 6 has viewmax bundled .

  • I have some versions not in the list, how do I contribute?
  • You can use any "cloud" file hosting site or a personal web site to share your file and then either post a link on the forum that I will grab and upload to the site, or you can send me a Private Message via the forum with the link if you want to keep the link private.
  • I know the following English(USA) version 5.0 are as follows.

    06/15/1990
    08/14/1990
    02/01/1990

    MrPoppe, I think you seem not to understand SomeGuy's said.
    Also I feel that you feel like posting a random crap.
    We appreciate it when you make an offer.
